No hiding Confederate general statue

The Tennessee Department of Transportation has denied a request to hide a statue of Confederate general and early Ku Klux Klan member Nathan Bedford Forrest.
    
The Tennessean reports that Nashville's Metro Council asked that trees and shrubs be planted to hide the statue, which is next to Interstate 65 and can be seen by passing motorists.
    
The department says, it "does not plant foliage on its right-of-way with the sole intention of blocking items on private property based on what might be offensive to some and not to others."
